PITTSBURGH (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA) — As U2 rolls through Pittsburgh for the final stop of their North American Tour, Mike Pintek talks to Neil McCormick, author of Killing Bono.

McCormick’s memoir, recently adapted into a feature film, recounts his upbringing in Dublin and his friendship with his schoolmate Bono, chronicling the U2 frontman’s rise to fame while McCormick spent years toiling away in rock obscurity.

Mike asks McCormick about how his relationship with Bono has changed over the years and what it’s like to watch a friend and musical contemporary rise to world fame.
